"With what shall I come before God, and bow myself before God on high? God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does God require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:6,8)
Sometimes an open door is all you need. You're not looking for a church to tell you its own version of right and wrong.
You're not looking for a church that has all the answers. Or a church that includes only the right kind of people. You're looking for a church where you can bring your doubts,your questions, your fears, and find a welcoming, open community willing to share them.
Reconnect your spirit without disconnecting your mind.
The doors to our churches are always open and within, you will find a quiet place for prayer and a nurturing community ready to help you find your voice and your vocation to the world in Christ's name. Come and see.
The Rev. Canon Heather Cook was elected bishop suffragan on the fourth ballot on Friday, May 2 at the 230th Diocesan Convention at the Turf Valley Inn. /p>
Canon Cook, 57, is the Canon to the Ordinary in the Diocese of Easton, where she works closely with the bishop around transition, communication and reconciliation. Cook's life work has been to create connections and build community around the Good News of God's love, and she is committed to helping the Church re-tool for greater effectiveness in a post-Christendom society.
The consecration of the new bishop suffragan is slated for September 6th at the Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore.
It's in the Bag! is growing and needs your help to provide food for at-risk children in the elementary schools of Garrett County. Your donation in any amount will help feed a hungry child over the weekend during the school year. Children who are well fed over the weekend show up at school on Monday ready to learn and studies show that these children do better when they are well nourished. A donation of $280 will feed a child for the entire school year. We're working to raise $15,000 between now and the start of the new school year. Will you help? Click on the donate button and you will be responsible for a child ready to be educated and grow.
Your donation in any amount today will support the ministries of The Episcopal Church in Garrett County. It will help to feed school children through It's in the Bag, provide food, shelter, and clothing for people in need, a meal for someone who is hungry through Stephen's Table, and sustain our on line webcasts through The Church on the Web. Donations are tax-deductible and go directly to our mission efforts.
